Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:07 PM) 8 and 10 were my favourites. 10 mostly because I love Choushirous storyline so much.
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:09 PM) As much as I dislike the flashlight, I'm kinda anxious to play his chapter. I wanna know how his story ends up. As long as the kid's school stuff doesn't take too long, hoping to knock out chapter 9 tonight!
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:09 PM) My mind is still stuck on the end of chapter 8 though... Misakiiiiii T_T
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:11 PM) I know what you mean. What I disliked the most about the flashlight was that it took too long to regenerate. It happened way too often that I had to stop in the middle of the fight and run in circles until I could fight again, lol.
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:16 PM) I think Chapter 9 is my favourite
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:17 PM) Not to be spoilery, but it has some really cool locations
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) argh that happened in the backyard part when all those ghosts regenerate! I couldn't keep up
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) and !!!!! new locations?!
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) yes! be free, my child, you are no longer stuck in the hospitals
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:24 PM) Omggg... Do the kids really need to go get their school schedule tonight and meet their teachers....?  :que:
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:24 PM) definitely not, education isn't that important
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:25 PM) < dispenser of wisdom and good advice
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:28 PM) "It'll be a real adventure on the first day, guys! Discovering the unknown!"
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:32 PM) Are they supposed to meet their teachers before they start going to school?
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM) Yeah. Their school is different and they don't get their class schedule until tonight. GRowing up I got mine in the mail so I could call my friends and see what classes we had together.
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM) So tonight we go, they get their schedule and their locker #'s, and get to go and see where their classes are. Which is nice since there's only like 3 min breaks to get from one classroom to the next
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 04:56 PM) I need to replay FF4 and visit all those beautiful unsetting cozzy rooms again.
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 05:07 PM) Listening to the soundtrack again I remembered this 8 bit version of Tsukimori song a friend from school made this for me and uploaded it on youtube. https://www.youtube....h?v=k0ZlvwD2Sws
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 05:08 PM) not sure if i ve shared it before  :thinking:
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 05:12 PM) i don't think you have! that's awesome <3

I have the Homebrew channel and I bought a Wii specifically to play FF4, so I'm kind of willing to do a lot to play these games legally. I really, really want to play this version of FF2, so please, someone who knows about this stuff, HELP ME PLAY THIS GAME! (Please.) Thanks in advance!

My Wii has HBC and Riivolution only (AFAIK), it's not chipped or anything, won't run pirated games at all, I bought FF2 Wii PAL and it worked fine. I guess that's a legal way to run it, isn't it? ;)

 

I'm not from US, so I don't really know about laws there, maybe it is more strict than here, since now you can't even unlock smartphones.

Homebrew is technically not "legal", but i am not getting into that grey area.

Regardless, having homebrew should enable you to play your storebought pal version of ff2 on your American wii without an issue. Enjoy!

(Pretty sure that FF2 for the Wii has to have a 4.3 update on it, so just using the riivolution software won't work w/o homebrew)

Just a question: what is Homebrew?

Most of the information you need can be found in this thread: http://bcl.rpen.us/c...k-on-a-43-wii/  Of course, you wouldn't need to get the patch, just go through the Homebrew bits. I used this guide, and it works fine.  One thing I did notice is that Riivolution did not like my Wiimotion plus remote, so if you get some icon issues, use a regular wiimote. Not everyone has this problem.

Easy said then done (or should I say expensive?) import a PAL Wii to play it (or a Japanese Wii if you're getting the Japanese version). That is the only legal way you can play it without moding which moding a system is NOT legal.

We don't allow the discussions of emulators in here. If you want to play the game, you need to buy a legal copy.  It's a hassle that it wasn't released in North America, I know, but many people have managed it, and plenty of us are happy to help people if they try one of the ways listed above and still have difficulties.

I'm not gonna argue with you, I'm just telling you that I was not talking about buying a legal copy or not, just about the emulator itself, which is legal as long as you acquire your own BIOS form your own purchased wii. And honestly, I think playing that game on an emulator, and I mean from the disc is just as legal as playing it in your however-modded Wii. I guess I shouldn't have brought it up, but I couldn't help it either :)

Guys, lets be clear on this - since another member was asking me my personal opinions on it. The reason why we do not discuss said subject matter in the forums is because Tecmo watches my forums and website. I also know that people from the gaming industry have been users here before. I have in the past gotten already one letter about 'watching content that is being posted on my website' or we will take action. Whatever personal opinions or feelings I have, I would rather very much to continue to have these forums, the wiki, up and running so we can talk about fatal frame than have one topic on hacking, modding, importing, that gets EVERYTHING shut down. So here is my last friendly warning on the subject. Please do not discuss emulators, homebrew, freeloader, or downloading game torrents, burning games, copying games etc in these forums. If you really wish to say something, go to pm or email, or another forum that is dedicated to that kind of discussion. The only exception about homebrew talk is in reference to installation of the fan translation in the ff4 section. There is no technical need to discuss the deep crimson butterfly game since the only place it wasnt released was the us. If you can't help yourself and do post, I'm deleting your post, and dealing out warning points. So please follow the very easy rules here so I don't have to play the 'bad guy' in all of this. This topic has pretty much been answered, so going to close it.

Oops, sorry. What a can o' worms I didn't mean to open! I appreciate the help, everyone, and totally respect the admins. (And I honestly only got the H.channel for the translation of FF4.)
